  • Increase the personnel's understanding of the risks of cybercrime and create basic skills to manage them, at workplace and home.
  • Make security training continuous, 10-minute episodes fit in everyone’s calendar. New episodes are published periodically, so that awareness is maintained throughout the year.
  • Guide personnel to behave in accordance with the EU's privacy regulations by increasing understanding of why data privacy and security are important.
